Can you tell who’s a good agent before working with them?
Questions to ask:
1. Do they represent many schools? Best if they are reputable schools. Reputable schools sign with good agents, so you can piggy back on their choices;)
2. What is the greatest no. of students they sent to a single school in the past year? If they send same or more than your current best partner agents, you can almost be certain they are capable of doing the same for you.
3. Are they open-minded? If they keep rejecting your ideas, questioning your ideas, they probably won’t listen to your feedback in the future, causing problems in the working relationship. Most likely, they are not suitable for you.
These are just some examples.
